|Sadayatana 140: Fathomless Worlds - John Tocher|
Children will always be afraid of the dark, and men with minds sensitive to hereditary impulse will always tremble at the thought of the hidden and fathomless worlds of strange life which may pulsate in the gulfs beyond the stars, or press hideously upon our own globe in unholy dimensions which only the dead and the moonstruck can glimpse. - --H.

A carnival in daylight is an unfinished beast, anyway. Rain makes it a ghost.

He liked caves, and was tempted to set out for it. But distances here were deceptive, and there might not be time before dark; besides, he did not feel the necessary energy inside him. “Tomorrow I’ll come earlier and go up,” he said to himself. He stood looking up the valley a little wistfully, his tongue seeking the fig seeds between his teeth, with the small tenacious flies forever returning to crawl along his face...

By and large, horror fiction is the most difficult to domesticate because part of the point is that it's one step ahead – or behind – everybody else's taste. And I'm not really convinced I'd like it to change. There's something very healthy about horror fiction being always a little bit on the outside.

I feel like it's a misunderstood genre in that people expect it to be creepy and dark, etc...

Actually it was released in 2007 for sale on recycled cassettes, but coming out again soon on Buddhist on Fire as CC music. Backyard Ghost again. Played these tracks on "Calm, Happy Whispers", and listening to it later, it felt like I needed a seatbelt...

|Sadayatana 088: Bizarre And Flawed - John Tocher|
I used to think I was the strangest person in the world but then I thought there are so many people in the world, there must be someone just like me who feels bizarre and flawed in the same ways I do. I would imagine her, and imagine that she must be out there thinking of me too. Well, I hope that if you are out there and read this and know that, yes, it's true I'm here, and I'm just as strange as you...

|Sadayatana 093: Ruled By Fictions - John Tocher|
We live in a world ruled by fictions of every kind — mass merchandising, advertising, politics conducted as a branch of advertising, the instant translation of science and technology into popular imagery, the increasing blurring and intermingling of identities within the realm of consumer goods, the preempting of any free or original imaginative response to experience by the television screen. We live inside an enormous novel...

A few seconds later, new black clouds plunged everything into darkness, but I stayed on my feet, suffocating, feeling my hair in the wind, and weeping wretchedly, like Simone herself, who had collapsed in the grass, and for the first time, her body was quaking with huge, childlike sobs. - Georges Bataille, The Story of the Eye (1928) startartisttitle00:00emptywhaleA Lack of Warning Signs May Be A Sign Itself04:16Another Neglected HobbyStrange Awakening17:38Wings of an AngelDance Me To The End O...

|Sadayatana 063: Smooth Road - John Tocher|
At some point after moving out to Houston I heard about a genre of music called "Chopped and Screwed". I always try to burrow into whatever local scene exists. If there is not support for the local scene there is no music scene.... Ya anyway, looking forward to my first taste of "Chopped and Screwed", when I finally heard some I was sorely disappointed. It's music that sounds like you're overdosing on cough medicine ya see...

|Sadayatana 049: With Wet Light - John Tocher|
This show is almost completely composed of music taken from the community audio section of archive.org. Basically all the dark ambient material I could find there. Well, rather it's taken from that material. It comes to just thousands and thousands of tracks. My favorite discovery this time was the music of Morpheus and Chaos Condensed. The show starts with a "mashup" of some of this material and other tracks are found throughout...

|Sadayatana 048: Sleeping Mind - John Tocher|
Been focusing on preproduction lately. Changing the way the music is pulled together. Kind of a transitional show. A mix of old and new. Finally got the permission thing squared away with The Implicit Order. I can play anything he puts out now. Thank you Implicit Order. A track from the new Mystified release from Dark Winter. Love that cover. Played a bunch of dark tracks from the DNA Production netlabel...
